(11-Oct-16) The popularity of solar power amongst motorhomers, caravanners and campervanners continues to grow and enjoyed a boost this summer thanks partly to the increased number of Brits choosing to spend their holiday on home turf as well as a boom in the number of leisure vehicle owners.
According to the National Caravan Council (NCC) new motorhome registrations for Q1 2016 increased by 20% year on year making the UK one of the fastest growing motorhome markets in Europe.
UK-based developer of solar power solutions for the leisure vehicle sector Solar Technology International has seen this trend reflected in sales of its products developed specifically for campervanners, motorhomers and caravanners with a 28% year on year sales uplift.
“Leisure vehicle owners are becoming increasingly sophisticated and more knowledgeable on how solar power can work for them,” explained Adrian Williams, Solar Technology International, he continued: “Solar power provides the absolute freedom of an off grid power supply as well as the level of customisation, ease of instalment and operation demanded by leisure vehicle owners.”
Solar Technology International will be showcasing its range of solar products at the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2016 that enable leisure vehicle owners to enjoy the full benefit of a green, clean and renewable power source.
PV Logic Solar Panel Kits harness the power of the sun and provide enough electricity to run devices ranging from lighting to water pumps and televisions. They also have the added benefit of operating as trickle chargers so that when a motorhome or caravan is not in use, provided the roof remains exposed to the sun, the leisure battery will remain topped up, additionally it can help power an alarm system.
The PV Logic Solar Panel Rooftop Kits range from 20W to 150W and have been designed for simple installation. Each Panel Rooftop Kit includes step by step instructions, as well as a customised bracket for practical, stylish fitting. Alternatively, the required size of PV Logic Solar Panel can be retro-fitted by one of the manufacturers’ Premier Dealers.
The PV Logic Flexi Solar Panel Rooftop Kits provide a low profile, super lightweight panel that simply glues to the campervan, motorhome or caravan roof. These shatterproof panels range from 10W to 80W and flex to fit any curvature in the roof surface where streamlining and weight are of paramount importance. Each panel also has ‘self healing’ technology, slight abrasions to the panel surface caused by tree branches for example are ‘healed’ within a few hours.
The PV Logic Fold Up Solar Panel is fully portable and does not require fixing to the motorhome or caravan roof, it connects directly to the leisure battery and folds into a tough and portable briefcase. It can be unfolded and located outside the motorhome or caravan to face the sun by means of adjustable support legs. The PV Logic Fold Up Solar Panel is available in 40W, 60W and 90W.
Solar Technology International will be at the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2016 from 11-16 October at Birmingham’s NEC, stand number 20.95. Special offers will be available on purchases made at the Show.
